Research programsResearch in the Laboratory for the study of Emotion Elicitation and Expression investigates the cognitive mechanisms involved in the appraisal of relevant stimuli, and how these processes elicit emotions, and modulate perception, attention, learning, memory, and decision-making.
Currently, five major research programs are developed. These research programs aim at empirically investigating:
- The nature and function of relevance detection in emotion elicitation
- Appraisal-driven facial expression of emotion
- Mechanisms underlying emotional attention
- Mechanisms underlying emotional learning and memory
- Emotional processing of olfactory stimuli
- Bidirectional links between emotions and food intake
